Ganesa Manasa Pooja
(Mental worship of Ganesa)
Here is a simple prayer which helps the devotee to worship Ganesa. I have taken this prayer from
http://ioustotra.blogspot.in/2014/09/shri-ganesh-manaspooja.html . And there it is said
“ Shri Ganesh ManasPooja is in Sanskrit. Manas Pooja means the pooja performed in the mind. We have to sit in calm and quietly and perform it. See God Ganesha on screen of your mind. Now offer whatever best you can to the God. Costly Ornaments, Vastra, flowers, garlands, Sweets, everything you have to see in your mind and assume that you are giving it to God Ganesha. Your honest feeling is enough. You don't have to purchase anything. We have to visualize that everything best we are giving to god. Please have an experience and see that all your good wishes are fulfilled by the blessings of God Ganesha. “
1.Nana rathna vichithrakam ramanikam Simhasinam kalpitham.
Snanam Jahnavi vaarinaa, ganapathe peethambaram gruhyatham.
Kante moukthika maalikaa , sruthiyuge dwe dhaarithe kundale ,
Nana rathna virajitho ravi vibhaa yuktha kireeta sire.
1,I am mentally offering you a pretty throne embedded with various costly gems,
Then I offer you water with water of ganges, Oh Ganesa now I am offering this yellow silk ,
I offer o pearl necklace to your neck and make you wear two ear globes in your ears,
And then place the crown shining like sun made by various gems on your head.
2.Bhale charchithakesharam mrugamadhaa modhankitham chandanam,
Nana Vruksha samudhratham sukusumam mandhara Dhoorvaa Sami,
Guggulendhwa dhoopakam virachitham dheepam thwadagre sthithaam,
Sweekritha they Ganesa Bhakshyam Jambuphalam Dakshinaam
2.I apply saffron , mixed with musk and sandal paste on your forehead,
Then offer you good flowers from various trees along with Mandhara , Dhoorva grass and Sami leaves,
Then I show you the incense smoke of Guggul resins and then show you the lamp standing near you ,
Oh Ganesa accept them and then please eat the rose apple fruit offered by me.
3.Saashtaangm pranathosmi they mama kruthaa pojaa grahaana Prabho,
May Kama sathatham thavarchana vidhou budhisthavalingane ,
Swechchaa they Mukha darsani Ganapathe BHakthisthu Paadambuje ,
Praseedha mama poojane Ganapathe mama vaanchaa thava darsine.
3.Then I salute you falling on ground and Oh Lord please accept the worship offered by me,
I desire that always that during your worship , I hug you mentasally,
On mty own , Oh Lord Ganapathi , I show myself to you with devotion on your lotus like feet,
Get pleased with my worship Oh Ganapathi and my desire is to see you.
